"The Nation's Thoroughfare" is the 
name President Roosevelt gave the city of 
Louisville, the chief city of Kentucky, the 
third largest and most important city in Dixie, 
situated on the line of traffic from the East to 
the West and South, on the Falls of the Ohio 
River, one of the greatest inland waterways of 
the country. It is both the starting point and 
goal, where the great highways of commerce, 
East, West and South, meet and cross. 

The city of Louisville has a population of 
223,908; covers a territory of twenty and one- 
half square miles, with a river frontage of eight 
miles in length. 

Long and moderate summers, temperate win- 
ters, flowerful springs, and delightful autumns 
make the climate mild and healthful. The 
death rate is very low. 

Louisville to-day stands first among American 
communities as the city of Homes. Daniel 
Boone stood on the tops of the Cumberlands 
and chose Kentucky rather than another land 
for the Star of the Empire's course. He opened 
the trail toward the sandy shore and the green 
valleys ascending the southward at the Falls 
of the Ohio. The pathfinder became the home 
lover, and in his wake came hundreds filled with 
his enthusiasm and spirit. Iron and steel have 
since come to push into the country side about 
Louisville the brick and stone mansions which 
have long ago taken the place of the cabins and 
frame dwellings; a modern city has sprung from 
the gentle spirit of the old southern town, and 
here are schools, churches, industries, railroads, 
clubs and amusements. Here's all the glamour 
of modern city life with all the benefits of coun- 
try residence. Here's all the advantages of 
social folks and here's sunshine the year 'round.

The South has in its cotton the most profitable 
staple crop on earth. The crop of 1910 was 
valued at $1,000,000,000. 

Cotton cannot be grown anywhere on earth 
(save very small crops in India and Egypt) 
except the Southern States. 

One-half the remaining timber in this coun- 
try is in the Southern States. 

Coal and iron deposits are found in abundance 
in the South, and even precious metals. 

The South abounds in rice and cane fields, in 
addition its soil produces all the staple crops of 
the North and West. 


At the head of the Ohio Valley is the center 
of the greatest manufacturing district in the 
world . 

The Ohio Valley produces more iron and steel 
than either Great Britain, Russia, France, 
Austro- Hungary or Belgium. 

The tonnage of the east section of the Ohio 
Valley exceeds the combined tonnage of five of 
the world's greatest ports — New York, London, 
Liverpool, Hamburg and Antwerp. 

The Ohio Valley now embraces the center of 
population and center of manufacturing of the 
United States. 

The Ohio Valley produces more coal, steel 
rails, petroleum, plate-glass and structural steel 
than does any other section of the United

Louisville offers the lowest possible freigt 
rates with competition between three great rail- 
road systems and the Ohio River, with its 
tributaries of 33 navigable rivers connecting 
with the Gulf of Mexico. 

Louisville furnishes labor, fuel and factory 
sites cheaper than any other city of equal size 
in the United States. 

Louisville exempts from taxation for 5 years 
all new manufacturing enterprises. 


The Louisville district produces 50 per cent, 
more fine whisky, technically speaking, than 
any other district in the United States. 

Louisville is the only city that bears the dis- 
tinction of having entertained both the Grand 
Army of the Republic and the United Con- 
federate Veterans Association. 

Louisville has entertained every large gather- 
ing to be held in this country, such as the 
Knights Templar, the Knights of Pythias, the 
Shriners, etc., etc. 

Louisville has one of the largest and best filter-

The story told by the census of population 
from 1800 is of progress and growth, not wild 
and sporadic, but steady and giving promise of 
a half million within another decade.

The above are all either directory or Govern- 
ment census figures. 4,012 souls in the old 
town of Louisville read of the death of Napo- 
leon at St. Helena. 10,336 Kent tick inns dis- 
cussed the Missouri compromise; 43,194 re- 
joiced over the successful end of the Mexican 
War; 68,033 saw the opening of the Civil War. 
Rising from the war Louisville met 1870 with 
100,754, an increase of 35,000. The increase 
from that time forward has been in the tens of 


Long ago, steel and iron began to push into 
the vast country-side the handsome stone and 
brick residences that had taken the place of 
cabins and dwellings. Looking back, we find 
in 1819 but 650 buildings, in 1910 we find 
27,448 buildings. The city is pushing for- 
ward at a rapid but healthy rate; it being 
comparatively few years since Louisville's first 
" skyscraper' ' was built. Louisville's growth is 
better shown, during the last few years, in her 
office buildings than in any other external mani- 
festation. Human hives of stone and mortar 
are constantly springing up all over the business 
section. Last year Louisville spent $3,996,792 
in new buildings. Plants are remodeling and 
seeking more space. The land which may be 
built up is endless. 

The assessed value of property for the fiscal 
year of 1910, in the citv of Louisville, is $171 - 
000,000.00, an increase" of $12,210,700.00 over 
1909. From July 1, 1909, to June 1, 1910, the 
building inspector granted the following 'per- 
mits: — Churches, $74,550.00; apartment houses 
$219,875.00; dwellings, $1,482,462.00; factories' 
$98,128.00; stores, $174,200.00; warehouses,

The best tribute to Louisville architects may 
be in a survey of the buildings. To a large de- 
gree, local talent is responsible for the many fine 
structures that adorn its principal thorough- 
fares. The high standard reached by the 
Louisville craft of architects is due to the keen 
spirit of competition existing among its mem- 
bers and eagerness to keep ahead of the new 
and best of their particular fields. 


Louisville, the Convention City. 

For the past five years, Louisville has had 
more trade, social and political conventions than 
any other city of the country, save New York 
and Chicago. To do this means one thing — 
hotels. This city has the best hotels in the 
South. In fact it has one of the finest hotels 
in the tMjj ' cu »* - • T -> ; *-splf it can accom- 

be the ..*. i .:* ..'n, 

dining-rooms, saloon, umiard-rouin, r«r >i 
drawing-room have the finest equipment in U**, 
country. Numerous large hotels and many 
smaller ones make the question of entertainment 
and housing delegates an ensy one. 


Organization is the means to civil growth. 
Organization was early made by groups of men 
and women in Louisville who perceived its 
value. From this grouping together of persons 
with a common interest came the clubs, social 
and commercial, which have done much for 
Louisville. It has a club life that, like her 
social life, is individual. 

Twenty-six years ago, a coterie of men, 
prominent in the social, business and profes- 
sional life of the city, decided they could meet 
downtown in the easy and familiar intercourse 

of club life. The result of that decision was 
the founding of a club which was incorporated 
in 1882. The organization was given the name 
of Thackerry's hero, who forms one of the 
classic definitions of the word gentleman. 

This was the birth of the Pendennis Club, 
which for a quarter of a century has remained 
the standard of club life in this city. 

The Filson Club devotes its time to Kentucky 
literature and Kentucky authors. Its member- 
ship consists of many of the intellectual men 
and women of the community. The Filson 
Club was established in 1886. 

The Tavern Club, the young men's club of 
the city, was formed in 1901. Politics, com- 
merce, literature find place in its conversation, 
but its aim is social. 

The Woman's Club, established in 1890, is 
famous all over the United States. This organi- 
zation of the most intelligent and worthy women 
of Louisville, does not aim at political or com- 
mercial activity, but invites lecturers and pro- 
fessors to speak on all questions that interest 

The Standard Club, the membership of which 
is confined to Hebrews, is magnificently ap- 
pointed and extremely popular. 

The Country Club has its quarters in a hand-

les these clubs with definite club houses, 

, . c ire many social, political and religious 

organizations, which work in their distinct 

soheres, such as the Business Woman's Club, 

the Catholic Woman's Club, the Louisville Boat 

Club, the Louisville Golf Club, the Cherokee 

Golf Club, the Young Men's Institute, the 

South Park Fishing Club, the Y. M. C. A., the 

Women's Christian Association, the Y. M. H. A. 

and mnny others. 


The city directory gives a list of over fifty 
of these institutions. They are one of the chief 
evidences of culture and civilization, the pro- 
vision made by a community for its sick and 
nffiicted. Every condition of need and suffering 
is provided for. 






Kentucky has more navigable rivers belong- 
ing to her' than any State in the Union; 226 
towns served by 1,285 miles of rivers, the Ohio, 
the Big Sandy, the Kentucky, the Green, the 
Barren and the Mississippi- Nine foot st ages 
are being made by recent congressional appro- 
priation. When this is completed and when 
the Isthmian Canal is cut. 60,000,000 tons of 
trade will pass by and stop at Louisville each 
year. From New Orleans will come the treas- 
ures of the Orient and South America. Between 
the opened Pacific and the opened Atlantic, 
between Pittsburg and New Orleans, between 
South America and New York, lies Louisville, 
destined by facts and figures and conditions to 
be the inland port of America. 

Rich coal from the Pennsylvania and Ken- 
tucky fields, flour, corn, meat, farm products 
of all Grinds will be carried by and to Louisville. 

Louisville is the largest exporting point for 
straight and blended whiskies in the world; the 
largest tobacco exporting point, and a great 
artery for shipments of hemp, corn, cane. etc. 

On either shore there are many available fac- 
tory sites. 

President Roosevelt, in his message referring 
to the river system, said in part: "Our great 
river system should be developed as a national 
highway; the Mississippi with its tributaries, 
stands first in importance. The national gov- 
ernment should undertake the work. From 
the Great Lakes to the mouth of the Mississippi, 
there should be a deep waterway, with deep 
waterways leading from it to the East and the 
West. Such a waterway would practically 
mean the extension of our coast lines into the 
heart of the country. It would be of incalcu- 
lable value to our people." 

A glance at the following table of figures is 
sufficient to convince the most utter skeptic 
that business on the Ohio has grown: 

Annual shipment of coal from Pittsburg, 
50,000,000 bushels. 

Coal shipped to Louisville annually from 
Pittsburg, 40,000,000 bushels. 

Coal from local distribution, 26,000,000 

Coal shipped from Louisville to the South, 
24,000,000 bushels. 

Number of people employed, 20,000. 
Tons of freight carried by local packet com- 
panies, 800,000. 

Value of freight carried and brought to local 
harbors, $600,000,000.00. 

Number of passengers taken from and brought 
to Louisville, 500,000. 

Number of people employed by local packet 
companies, 1,600. 

Thus an idea of the gigantic ramification of 
the Ohio's traffic is gained, the figures being 
nearly correct. A fact is that .a single ship- 
ment of to-day in the coalboat movement is 
more than that of a year twenty years ago. 
The shipment of a year ago is ten times greater 
than that of twenty years ago. 

There are about fifteen steamboats that ply 
between Louisville and upper and lower points. 
By this means Louisville has water communi- 
cation with nearly every point up the river to 
Pittsburg and as far south as Cairo. Thousands 
of miles are traversed weekly, and millions of 
dollars worth of freight transported in the course 
of a week. 

The story of Louisville imports is best told 
by the duties received: 

1900 $278 695.33 

1901 283,703.95 

1902 348,182.97

The Kentucky State Fair, created by act of 
legislature in the winter of 1902, after being 
held once each in the cities of Lexington and 
Owensboro, is now located permanently in 
Louisville. It occupies a site comprising 150 
acres ideally situated for the purpose, with a 

long-time option on adjacent property of near 
the same size. 

The grounds were purchased for $60,000.00, 
and in April of 1908 the State Fair Board began 
the erection of a live stock pavilion, a mam- 
moth grand stand, thirty additional temporary 
live stock barns, located in such position on the 
grounds that they can be used for emergency 
purposes after the permanent barns are erected. 

In the summer of 1908 the Board also began 
the construction of a half-mile race course, mak- 
ing provision to construct a mile track the fol- 
lowing year. The first mile track, after 1909, 
will be used as an exercise track, and its location 
will not interfere with the permanent mile track. 

Despite the fact that only a half-mile track 
was provided for 1908, provision was made early 
in the year for one of the greatest race meetings 
in the history of Kentucky, to be held at the 
1 90S State Fair, which had dates from Septem- 
ber 12 to September 19 inclusive, being sand- 
wiched between the Indiana and Tennessee 
State Fairs. This race meeting included three 
stake light harness races, seven light harness 
purse races, three Gentlemen's Road races, and 
running races, considered one of the best cards 
ever offered on a race course. 

The Fair grounds are amply drained by the 
great Western Outfall sewer, and water is pro- 
vided in abundance both from the reservoir and 
from Paddy's Run, which courses through a 
woodland section of the grounds. Four light- 
ing systems are in close proximity to the grounds. 
The grounds are easily accessible to all the rail- 
roads entering Louisville, and its switching facili- 
ties are unsurpassed. 

The Louisville Railway Company has double 
tracked the West Broadway and Greenwood 
Avenue lines direct, through a loop, into the 
grounds, so that the visitor detrains from a two- 
miniito schedule car at the front gates of the 
Fair. The loop is so constructed that cars do 
not block each other in going to and from the 

Both Jefferson county and the city of Louis- 
ville began preparations in the summer of 1908 
for a magnificent driveway to enter the Fair 

grounds. One of the pleasing features of the 
site selected by the Slate Fair Board is its mag- 
nificent shade trees scattered liberally through- 
out the grounds, and a rugged woodland scene 
on one edge of the grounds, which has been con- 
verted into :i perfect tryst ing bower, well lighted 
with electric globes. 

The pavilion was erected at a cost of $100,000 
and was built upon a scale which admits the 
spectators to witness the judging of show rings 
under a single roof, so that neither rain nor the 
hot rays of the sun can interfere with the award- 
ing of prizes. The building is well ventilated 
and located; as it is near the river front, a deli- 
cious breeze blows through the grounds at all 
times of the year. The live stock pavilion was 
designed also as a convention hall with the 
prospect that in future yea «ril political con- 
ventions and other large meetings will be held 
under its roof. 

A convention hall, fitted up to seat com- 
fortably 500 persons, was constructed in the 
basement of the grand stand, and a convention 
bureau was established in the summer of 1908 
to secure for State Fair week all conventions 
possible. Approximately a score of conven- 
tions were called to be held at the State Fair as 
a result of the work of this bureau, and the 
convention features will doubtless be continued 
in future years. 

The grand stand was erected at an estimated 
cost of $25,000.00. This liberal outlay of money 
to fit quickly the State Fair site into permanent 

grounds was donated by the citizens of Louis- 
ville in an exciting contest, in the summer of 
1000, to secure the permanent location of the 
S'ale Fair. Of the amount contributed, $50,- 
000.00 was donated by the city council, a similar 
amount by the Jefferson County fiscal court, and 
$65,000.00 was donated by subscription by the 
business interests of the city. 

Kentucky is pre-eminently an agricultural 
fair State, county fairs of the highest standard 
having been held within its borders for a cen- 
tury and a quarter. The legislature of 1902 
made the first provision for a State Fair, pro- 
viding for an annual appropriation of $15,000.00 
to be distributed in prizes each year. For the 
time being the Fair was placed under the auspi- 
ces of the Kentucky Live Stock Breeders Asso- 
ciation. The State Fair was held at Louisville 
in 1902, at Owensboro in 1903, and on account 
of the World's Fair at St. Louis, no State Fair 
was held in Kentucky in 1904. The following 
year the fair was held at Lexington, and in 
1906 and 1907 it was held at historic Churchill 
Downs, in Louisville. Each year it has been 
an increasing success, and the present indica- 
tions are that in the future it will be one of the 
commonwealth's crowning 7 glories. The legis- 
lature of 1906 took its management out of the 
hands of a private association, and created a 
State Board of Agriculture, Forestry and Immi- 
gration, one of whose duties it is to provide for 
the State Fair. The ex- officio chairman of this 
board is M. C. Rankin, Commissioner of Agri- 


culture. Former State Senator J. W. Newman, 
of Woodford County, author of the State Fair 
bill, is the secretary of the State Fair. * 

The members of the State Board are: 
M. C. Rankin, M V A. Scoville, G. N. McGrew, 
Guthrie M. Wilson * William Addams, Fred R 
Blackburn, L. L. Dorsey, H. M. Froman, J. L. 
Dent, and J. W. Newman, secretary 


Louisville is the premier tobacco market of 
the world. Kentucky is the greatest tobacco 
producing State in the Union. The soil of the 
State grows any brand; the old Virginia sort, 
the red hurley and dark. Tn every county of 
the State can be seen "stretched" patches of the 
light cabbagy green of the growing plant. 

Louisville, with eight immense sales ware- 
houses, two independent tobacco warehouses, 
and several storage houses, has a to\d s: orage 
capacity of the market, now estimated at more 
than 60.000 hogsheads, the highest market ever 
yet reached, and more than the combined stor- 
age capacity of the South and West. Louisville 
is the geographical and commercial center of the 
greatest amount and variety of leaf tobacco 
grown in any one area in any part of the world. 
The region that contributes more than half the 
crop of the United States is tributary to it. 

The first thoroughly equipped warehouse was 
erected in 1852. During the first two years of 
the Civil War the market remained practically 
at a standstill, but at the close of hostilities 
began to renew its old activity. The year 1885 
was the second and most important era in its 
development. 127,046 hogsheads were received 
and recorded sold in those twelve months, 
whereas the entire sales of the West amounted 
to only 270,000 hogsheads, and in no former 
year had Louisville borne so great a proportion 
of the whole trade of the West. For fifteen 
years prior to 1885, her proceeds from the sales 
of tobacco had amounted to .$4,616,459.00, but 
in that year the sales amounted to $12,000,000. 

In 1890 all the large warehouses, except the 
first one built, were taken over by a company, 
known as the Louisville Tobacco Warehouse 
Company, which was capitalized at .$1,435,000.00 
common stock and $350;000.00 preferred stock. 
Changes were made in the property thus ob- 
t ained, and a thorough organ iza! ion was effected, 
insuring a concentration of operations and a 
more satisfactory service to the buying and 
selling public. 

Fifty thousand hogsheads is given as the stor- 
age capacity of the Louisville Tobacco Ware- 
house Company, and with the capacities of 
several other houses added, it is safe to say that 
Louisville's total capacity as a market will reach 
60,000 hogsheads or more. 


The process through which the tobacco passes, 
from the time it reaches the market until it is 
disposed of and shipped to various manufac- 
turers to be turned into a final product, is never 
void of interest. 

When a farmer has dried and prized his 
tobacco and shipped it to some warehouse in 
the city, he gives notice to the company that he 
expects to arrive on a certain day, when he 
desires to have his crop put on the market for 
sale. In the meantime, pending his arrival, the 
tobacco is received, inspected and put in con- 
dition generally. Regular bonded inspectors 
examine the contents of each hogshead and tag 
its quality accordingly. Their decision regard- 
ing the quality of the tobacco establishes the 
basis of every sale. When the day arrives for 
the sale of a certain crop, it is rolled out and 
put in line with several other crops, and the 
stock is put up for auction. 

After a sale is made, if the original owner is 
not satisfied with the price brought, he has two 
hours in which he may reject it. He can also 
reject any hogshead in particular, if he is dis- 
satisfied with the price brought. The buyer, by 
way of equalizing interests, may also throw back 
an equal number of hogsheads of the same crop 
as rejected. 

The first four months of storage is given to 
the grow r er free of charge, after that a charge of 
twenty-five cents a hogshead a month is made. 

If a sale is effected, a selling fee of one per cent, 
for each hogshead sold is charged and a buying 
fee of $2.00 attached to the purchases. The 
purchaser may leave the tobacco in storage for 
one month free, but at the end of that time 
must pay storage at the rate of twenty- five cents 
per hogshead per month. 

Upon the receipt of a shipment of tobacco at 
any warehouse, it is immediately covered with 

All warehouses are built of brick and are 
thoroughly equipped in every way. Every 
means necessary for the proper handling of 
tobacco is employed. 

The tlu-ee types of tobacco handled on the 
local market are known as hurley, dark and 
Green River I ypes. Dealings in the hurley grade 
constitute the bulk of the trade. This type is 
grown in nearly forty counties of the State, the 
Bluegrass, Northern and Central Kentucky. 
Dark types are cultivated in Western Kentucky 
and marketed at Hopkinsville. The Green 
River type is cultivated in the Northwestern 
counties and marketed at Owensboro. 

One tobacco county of the State ships 3,000,- 
000 pounds of hurley annually. 1,000 pounds 
is the yield per aero. There are 135.000 acres of 
Kentucky growing tobacco. In 1903 the farmer 
got $f>,90 a hundred pounds, now he gets $140.00 
per hogshead. 


Jefferson County is the largest Whisky pro- 
ducing county in the world, although Nelson, 
Marion and Anderson Counties, the first two of 
which are located in the Fifth Internal Reve- 
nue District, are immense producers. 

Louisville lays claim to being the largest 
market for the output of bonded whisky in the 
entire world. 

Some of the largest warehouses in the State 
are located in this city, and the big wholesale 
establishments arc the clearing houses \'ov the 
case products that go to all portions of the 
civilized globe. 

Kentucky whisky is famous in every city in 
the country. 

The first distillery erected in Louisville was at 
the corner of Fifth Street and the river, in 1773, 
by Evan Williams. 

There are nearly t went f- five liquor plants in 
Louisville, in addition to the numerous distil- 
leries out in the country. 

The story of the evolution of corn into whisky, 
and the chemical processes by which the gar- 
nered ears of corn are transformed into this 
worldwide article of commerce, is of great 
interest. Distilling equipments range from the 
old style copper kettles, such as were in vogue 
in the time of George Washington, to the huge 
modern "mashers" and ferment ers now em- 
ployed by some of the great distillery plants of 
the State. The primitive still of copper kettles 
is employed to this day in some of the mountain 
districts of Kentucky, where moonshining is still 
carried on. 


Louisville is (he biggest cattle market of the 
South, her stock yard industry is of immense 
importance, handling thousands of heads of 

c.ii t le annually, besides doing a t remendous trade 
in hogs, sheep, and mules. Louisville is a big 
feeder to the Chicago and Western markets. 


As a packing house center, Louisville is rap- 
idly growing in importance. She now ranks 
well at the top. At least 500,000 hogs, repre- 
senting a cash value of $5,000,000.00, and about 
30,000 head of cattle, valued at $1,200,000.00 to 
raisers, are packed in Louisville annually. Some- 
thing like 40 per cent, of the meat and lard thus 
produced is sent to foreign countries. 

Local packers ascribe this remarkable growth 
of the industry chiefly to the quality of cattle 
and hogs secured from the market, although it 
is admitted that Louisville's excellent shipping 
facilities are a prominent factor. 

The cattle raised in this country, especially 
in the Blue Grass, is unsurpassed. Pork packing 
in Louisville is known throughout the world as 
the highest grade. 


The thirteen slaughter house establishments 
employ over 500 men, and pay nearly $300,000.00 
in wages. 


A Kentucky thoroughbred is known all over 
the civilized world as the highest type of horse 
flesh. It is of interest to recall that as early as 
1783, a race course was established near Har- 
rodsburg, known as "Hoggins Race Paths." 
In 1780 John Harrison brought from Virginia a 
horse which ran over the Jefferson Street track 
and beat all the local horses. Lexington did not 
have a race track till 1789, but when the sport 
was started, it grew rapidly in popularity ami 
importance, and in 1809 a Jockey Club was 
established here. 

tion of the turkey shipment. Louisville alone * 
lias more than thirty poultry commission 
houses, both large and small. It is estimated 
that four firms ship together 70,800 cases of 
eggs to the East during the four-months sea- 
son. With the building of the proposed cold 
storage plant, Louisville, as an egg market, 
will become a trade factor 

during the entire 


Louisville occupies an important position as 
a vehicle manufacturing center and enjoys the 
distinction of being the home of the largest 
wagon manufacturing establishment in the 
world. The fame of the Louisville vehicle has 
traveled all over the nation, and to some parts 



Two hundred thousand spring chickens pass- 
ed through Louisville during the five and a 
half months season just closed to the Eastern 
markets. Four thousand heads are reckoned to 
the car with an average of five car loads a w T eek, 
maintained the year through, the shipments 
consisting of turkevs, chickens, guineas, geese 
and ducks. It is estimated that fully 1,000,000 
fowls, which are raised annually in Kentucky 
and parts of Ohio and Indiana, are shipped to 
Louisville and then distributed to the markets 
of the East. New York receives a great por- 

of the globe where least expected; a small 
nickel or gold tag informs the observer that the 
wagon or carriage was made at Louisville, 
Kentucky, U. S. A. This is a distinction of 
which the citv is justly entitled to boast. 

In one year, % 1905, $2,000,000.00 worth of 
wagons were made ready and placed on the 
market to assist in contributing (heir share to 
the upbuilding and development of Louisville 
and Kentucky. This city is fast growing into 
one of the most important centers in this line in 
the country, and as a natural consequence all in- 
dustries connected with the carriage and wagon 
making are srrowinff in proportion. 




Louisville occupies the strategical point, of the 
distribution of every class of agricultural imple- 
ments and tools used in tilling the soil and the 
harvest bag of crops. She occupies the center of 
a vast agricultural area extending in all direc- 
tions, allof which have to be sown, cultivated 
and garnered. 

Thousands of plows, harrows, drags, seeders, 
cultivators, mowers, haystackers, pressers, har- 
vesters, wagons and all common implements to 
be met with on every farm make up the 
vast domain. Every season sees carload after 
carload of implements and wagons of all de- 
signs to suit the different needs in different 
localities. All these come from Louisville. 
$2,000,000.00 worth of implements, as well as 
the wagons, were manufactured here and placed 
on the market in 1905. This is the home of one 
of the largest establishments devoted to the 
manufacturing of all manner of agricultural 
implements to be found in the United States, 
and each year more capital is being added to 
this industry. 


The tanning industry is a notable one in 
Louisville, and it is represented by a dozen of 
the largest concerns of the kind in the United 
States. They have earned for the city the 
honor of being one of the foremost centers in the 
world in tanning fine oak sole, belling and oak 
harness leather, $4,000,000.00 worth of sole 
leather being manufactured annually. 

Large amounts of Louisville leather go to 
the shoe factories of New England, where de- 
mand for the quality of leather is exceptionally 
large. The product of the Louisville tanneries 
is largely used by the saddlery trade, for har- 
ness, collar, legging leather and saddle skirting. 


1 The extensive manufactury of flour and beer 
in Louisville necessarily creates a large demand 
for cooper's produces, and this city supplies its 
own demand in this line, $1,500,000.00 worth of 
kegs and barrels being manufactured and used 
annually. There are a large number of these 
concerns engaged in this line here. 


The presence of extensive and valuable clay 
deposits within the easy reach of Louisville has 
given an impetus to t he local brick manufactur- 
ing industry. Several" large concerns engage 
in the manufacturing of bricks of various styles 
and colors covering the whole range of useful- 
ness of this staple and most necessary article. 


The proximity of Louisville to the great cot- 
ton fields of the South has led to the develop- 
ment of an extensive increase in the manu- 
facture of cotton seed oil. Large concerns with 
enormous buildings and railroad sidings, covering 
acres of ground, do a business greater than simi- 
lar concerns in the South. The uses of cotton 



seed oil in its various stages of refinement are 
very varied, and a big and staple market is 
found for it throughout the country. 


Louisville as a shopping center is unexcelled. 
Vast arrays of stores supply the needs of all 
classes of people. Attractive windows add to 
the displays of wares. 

Louisville is a shopper's paradise. 


Among other local important industries, that 
of the manufacturing of stoves is entitled to 
special mention. The ease and cheapness with 
which iron can be secured in Louisville has built 
up several strong firms in the business of mak- 
ing this househol 1 necessity. There is 
always a market for stoves, and continu- 
ous improvement is ,being made in the 
methods of their construction. 


The soap manufactured in Louisville last 
year, reduced to cakes weighing six ounces, 
each cake being four inches long, if placed 
in a straight line, would form a pathway 
35,444 miles in length. Lay them as 
bricks and they would pave many miles 
of the city's streets. 


The paint industry comprises the invest- 
ment of no small amount of capital, the 
operation of several big plants and the 
employment of 1,500 men. The exrellent 
standard that is attained has practically 
secured a monopoly on the Southern 
market for their products. 


Tons of chewing gum are made in Louis- 
ville and shipped from here annually. The 
rapid rise of the chewing gum business has been 


Another special feature of the lumber business 
is the concerns dealing in interior woodwork 
decorations. There are a number of responsible 
and enterprising firms in the city of Louisville 
who devote their exclusive time and capital to 
the manufacture of sashes, doors and blinds, 
for which they find an extensive sale. 


Louisville produces one-third of the cement 
made in the United States. It is first in quality. 
The various places making cement in this coun- 
• try yield about 8.000,000 barrels a year. 

The strength and durability of the cement 
made here upon full test are found to be that of 
the best made anywhere. 


Kentucky contains 16,100 square miles of 
bituminous coal. She is the third in area 
among the leading bituminous coal producing 
states and easily first in the variety^ quality 
and quantity of high class cannels and coking 
coals. Still on the line of home industries she 
is only seventh in production, as fully 40 per 
cent, of her output must be marketed out of 
the State. With 16,000 square miles of coal, 
there is the incredible tonnage of 103,040,000,000 
tons, or enough coal to supply the world for 100 
years, the United States for 325 years, or our 
own State for 12,000 years at the present rate 
of consumption. 


Kentucky has a greater area than Pennsyl- 
vania, yet only produces 8,000,000 tons annually 
to Pennsylvania's 100,000,000 tons of bituminous 


The lumber cut in this state in 1905, as 
stated by the Department of Agriculture, is said 
to have been about 27,738,000,000 feet. Appre- 
ciating the fact that but few could get an ap- 
proximate idea of how much lumber that is, a 
mathematician has figured out that it is sufficient 
to lay a board walk an inch thick and 2,000 feet 
wide from New York to San Francisco. 


Among the lines of trade which have made 
Louisville famous throughout the realm of com- 
merce as a distributing point of the first magni- 
tude, is the produce and commission business, 
which has assumed gigantic proportions and is 
on a firm and enduring basis. Engaged in this 
line of commerce are many houses whose enter- 
prise, standing and resources have made them 
known throughout the North, East, South and 

In 1905 the commission merchants received 
156,562 barrels of potatoes, 51,864 barrels of 
onions, 118,766 barrels of apples, 1,485,929 
pounds of dried fruit, 9,617,478 pounds of grass 
and garden seeds. 

Jefferson County has the largest production 
of potatoes of any county in the United States. 
One reason for this is that the gardeners raise 
two crops a year. The first crop matures about 
July 1st, and is sent to the Northern markets. 
The second crop matures October 1st, and is 
kept at home to supply the winter trade. 


Excellent railroad facilities and convenient 
river localities are two matters that appeal to 
manufacturers. Louisville has both, and also 
cheapness of fuel, together with a never- failing 
supply. Five years' exemption from taxes 
is still another inducement. Nearness to raw 
material of nearly every description, without 
the necessity of remoteness from markets, throws 
much weight on the scales in favor of Louisville. 

Undoubtedly Louisville is the location for 
manufacturers and every day this is being 
realized more and more fully all over the coun- 
try. All the factories are humming along at 
their fullest capacity to keep up with the orders, 
many of them working day and night. All of 
these things point to one fact, that the motto of 
the city of Louisville, "Progress," is to-day 
being exemplified in the highest degree. 



Louisville is regarded as one of the money 
centers of the country. She has a large terri- 
tory tributary to her, and interior banks all 
over the State of Kentucky, and indeed, all over 
Southern States, keep reciprocal accounts and 
carry their reserve balances with the banks of 
this city. 

Her geographical advantages, the enterprise 
of the people, the high class of her manufactories 
and the abundance of her banking capital, all 
point to great prosperity and growth. 


Louisville stands pre-eminent, not only among 
the cities of the South, but among those of the 
entire country, as an insurance center, and here 
are congregated the representation of every 
insurance company with an accredited standing 
which does business in the civilized world. 


There is hardly any other department of 
activity that affords such a reliable indicator 


of the progress and financial stability of a city 
as the real estate market 
_ With rapid increase in number and produc- 
tion of rural districts around Louisville and the 
continuous expansion of manufacturing and 
commercial establishments, the real estate 
business of the city is in a healthy and pros- 
perous condition, and values are on a solid and 
prosperous basis. 


The seven principal industries of Louisville 

are tobacco, with capital invested of nearly 
$25,000,000.00; liquor, with capital invested of 
nearly $10,000,000.00; foundry and machine 
shop products, with over $3,000,000.00 invested 
capital; publishing and printing, nearly $4,- 
500,000.00; men's clothing, over $3,500,000.00 
invested; slaughtering and meat packing, with 
$2,000,000.00, and flour and grist mill products, 
with $1,250,000.00 invested capital. 

The daily output of the wheat flour mill in 
Louisville is over 5,000 barrels. One mill is so 
immense that its output alone is nearly 3,200 
barrels a day. 

There are twenty men's clothing establish- 
ments which employ over 500 men, and pay 
over $300,000.00 in wages. 

The flour and grist mills employ over 300 men 
and pay nearly $200,000.00 in wages. 


The city of Louisville has one of the most 
modern, up-to-date and efficient water supplies 
of any city in the United States. The pumping 
engines, batteries of boilers and standpipe are 
unsurpassed and as nearly perfect as the best 
practical skill and management can make them. 
The filter system has a capacity of handling 
approximately 30,000,000 gallons daily, and Is 
one of the most complete and practical filter 
systems in the United States. The total number 
of service connections for water consumers ag- 
gregate nearly 30,000; total number of meters 
and hydraulic counters, 2,250; total number of 
public fire cisterns, 670; total number of public 
fire hydrants, 125; total number of public 
drinking fountains, 15; total number of utiles 
of pipe system is nearly 300. 

The recent improvements in the water plant 
make it possible to supply the city and citizens 
of Louisville with practically clear and pure 
water, and the city is the first city in the United 
States that will have a water supply of this 
character, known as the American Gravity Sys- 
tem. It will help to make the city of Louisville 
one of the most attractive for residence, busi- 
ness and manufacturing purposes. 




Louisville stands second to no city in the 
United States as regards protection from fire 
and supply of water. The fire department of 
Louisville has a national reputation. From the 
old "Bull in the Woods/' the name of the first 
steam engine in the city, built in 1885, the de- 
I partment has grown year by year. Vast strides 
nave been made in improvements on appliances 
for extinguishing that most destructive of all 
elements, fire. 


Three great bridges connect Louisville with 
the Indiana shore, two of which cross at Jeffer- 
sonville and the third at New Albany. 

The one into New Albany is operated by the 
Kentucky-Indiana Bridge Company, and crosses 
from the foot of Thirty-third Street. It was 
erected at a cost of $2,500,000.00. The bridge 
is used by the Southern, and the Baltimore and 
Ohio Southwestern. The electric line joining New 
Albany and Louisville also uses this bridge. 

contains 670 acres and has 5 miles of excellent 
macadamized roadways, and nearly 3 addi- 
tional miles of unmetafed roads. The thou- 
sands of native forest trees, with many thou- 
sands of plants, shrubs and trees, make it a 
beautiful place. Shawnee, or Western Park, is 
located on the banks of the Ohio River, on. the 
western side of the city. Its many flower beds 
and plants are very attractive, and it also has 
a bathing beach. 


The curious who visit Louisville are often 
taken to beautiful Cave Hill Cemetery for the 
express purpose of viewing the grave of "Jim" 
Porter, the physical giant, whose home was in 
Louisville. Porter was nearly eight feet tall' 
and the house in which he resided still stands in 
Shippingport, the section of the city that marks 
the landing of General George Rogers Clark, in 
Louisville, and where the first houses were built. 

The citv of churches. In 1811 Louisville had 

The latitude of 38 degrees, 3 minutes north, and 
the longitude of 85 degrees, 30 minutes west 
have stood ever since Captain Bullitt surveyed 
the land from the Ohio River to the Salt River, 
in the county which bears his. name. 


In 1765 Colonel George Croghan arrived at 
the site of the Falls and pitched a camp for the 
night, but the location did not seem to make 
much impression upon him, and he returned to 


Louisville has three claims to distinction pos- 
sessed by no other city of her class. First, it is 
the largest city near the center of population; 
second, it is on the Ohio River at the point of its 
greatest development; third, it is, as President 
Roosevelt termed it, "The Nation's Thorough- 


John Howard, in 1742, and Christopher Gist, 
in 1750, are the earliest white men recorded to 


There are roads for pedestrians and wagons. 

The Louisville and Jefferson ville Bridge Com- 
pany own the bridge connecting Louisville and 
Jeffersonville, at the foot of Wenzel Street. 
Controlling stock is owned by the Big Four, and 
the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroads. The Lou- 
isville and Southern Indiana interurban electric 
line also uses this bridge. It is one-half mile 
long, and the approaches at both sides make it 
one and a half miles in length. 

The Louisville Bridge Company own the 
bridge connecting Louisville and Jeffersonville, 
running in from the foot of Fourteenth Street. 
It is one mile and nineteen feet in length. It is 
used by the Dinky cars, the Pennsylvania and 
the Monon Railroads. 


There are quite a number of breathing spots 
about the city. The parks are a beautiful 
feature of Louisville, and they are a very attrac- 
tive feature of the city. 

Central Park is located in the very heart of 
the fashionable residence district. Cherokee 
Park has approximately 330 acres, over 6 miles 
of macadamized roads, and much more under 
construction. Iroquois, or Jacob Park, is 
located at the southern limits of the city. It 

but 1 church; in 1819, 3 churches; in 1846, 22 
churches; in 1910 Louisville lias 265 churches, 
of all denominations. 


In 1909 these aggregated $959,455.20, an in- 
crease of $53,313.30 over 1908. 


Louisville collected for 1909, $16,464,988.87, 
an increase of $1,051,353.37 over 1908. 


Colonel George Rogers Clark first saw the 
value of the Kentucky shore at the Falls of the 
Ohio. He reported it to the Virginia legislature 
which, in 1780, incorporated the town of Louis- 
ville and named it after Louis XVI., of France. 
In 1778 Colonel Clark landed with three families 
from Virginia, emigrants, on Corn Island. 


In the spring of 1773 Captain Thomas Bullitt 
was commissioned by Lord Dunmore, Governor 
of Virginia, to survey the Falls and its vicinity. 

land on the three-mile slate and sand stretch at 
the Falls of the Ohio River. 


The natural curiosities are many and fornTone 
of the principal attractions. First are the min- 
eral springs, iron and sulphur. For a hundred 
years they have been famed for their health- 
giving qualities. The waters are strongly im- 
pregnated with sulphur, chloride of lime, soda, 
bicarbonate of lime and free sulphurated hydro- 
gen. They have a pleasant mineral taste and 
are free from disagreeable odors. These waters 
have a wonderful curative power, and are pecu- 
liarly beneficial to all sufferers from disorders 
brought about by malaria and over exertion. 
They have a most beneficial effect upon the 
kidneys, stomach disorders and the skin. They 
are a special remedy for rheumatism, gout and 
neuralgia, in all stages, and in many cases are 
effective in Bright 's disease; an intestinal anti- 
septic in contagious and infectious diseases; 
especially where thetongue is coated, foul breath, 
languor, malaria, fever, jaundice and a tender- 
ness over th.2 liver. 


Lead, zinc, spar, coal, cobalt, oil, gas, Devo- 
nian and Neocene clay rock phosphate (72 per 


cent.), lump gravel — these are a running list of 
what lies under Kentucky. 


The lowest elevation of Kentucky is near the 
Mississippi River, where it is 300 feet above sea 
level, and at Lexington it is 1,150 feet, and at 
the border of the Cumberland Mountains from 
2,500 to 3,500 feet. 


Mammoth Cave, in Kentucky, one of the 
wonders of the world, has over 200 miles of 
avenues, the subteranean area including whole 
or part of six counties. 


Out of a population of 2,147,174, as shown by 
the census of 1900, Kentucky has only 50,24*9 
persons of foreign birth. The white population 
is principally of Scotch and English descent, 
with a fair proportion of Irish and German blood. 

as implements of stone, flint arrowheads and 

fieces of pottery. It was not the home of the 
ndian, as was first supposed, as they used the 
beautiful rolling grounds as their hunting fields 
and the terrible massacres that we read of in 
history, the tortures that the early settlers had 
to contend with, the privations caused by the 
attacks made by the Indians were not done by 
those that lived here, but were battles fought 
to keep the settler from taking away from them 
the hunting grounds that were their favorite 

The region now comprising the State was 
originally of Fincastle County, Virginia, and was 
later made into the county of Kentucky. Ken- 
tucky does not mean "The dark and bloody 
ground." The word is from the Iroquois word 
"Kentaki," which means meadow or prairie 
land. The original name of the region now 
comprising the State was the Indian word, 
"Chenoa." This name was used by the Chero- 
kees when they gave their deed to Richard 
Henderson, who was responsible for the pedan- 
tic name, "Transylvania," which did not long 
survive. The "dark and bloody ground" defi- 

the unbroken line the straight East and ^est 
line intended. When Walker and Henderson 
were appointed by North Carolina and Virginia 
to survey the boundary between the two States, 
they were directed to follow the parallel, 36 
degrees and 30 minutes. Owing to the wilder- 
ness character of the country and the impassi- 
bility they veered northward of the parallel, and 
at Cumberland Gap they were about seven miles 
to the north of the line. This line, after some 
dispute, became the boundary line between 
Tennessee and Kentucky and is known as the 
"Walker" line. 

As a result of the boundary adjustments with 
the incidental gains and losses to the territory 
of Kentucky, the State has now its strange 
westward tapering form and an area of 40,400 
square miles, 400 of which are water. 

In 1778, the title of the Transylvania Com- 
pany was legally annulled. On the Fourth of 
July, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted 
the Declaration of Independence, and in De- 
cember of that year Kentucky County was 
established by Virginia. Harrodsburg was the 
county seat. The population steadily in-

In agriculture, manufacture and the develop- 
ment of coal, oil, gas, iron and other mineral 
lands, the State has already done conspicuous 
things, but only a tithe of the possible has been 


The recent discoveries of fluor spar in Critten- 
den County, which supplied 97 per cent, of the 
Kentucky output last year are amazing. The 
Kentucky output represents an excess propor- 
tion of the output of spar in the United States. 
3,421 acres of all the 5,702 acres of spar in the 
United States are in Kentucky. 


A bare outline of the State's history is here- 
with given. 

Long ages before the territory now occupied 
by the State of Kentucky was discovered, there 
dwelt in this land a race of beings called Mound 
Builders on account of the mounds and monu- 
ments they erected. Many of these mounds 
have been opened and found to contain bones 
of human beings and of the mastodon, as well 

nition is explained by the fact that Colonel 
Henderson was told by the famous Cherokee 
"Chief Dragging Canoe" that the land south 
of the Kentucky River would be dark and diffi- 
cult to settle. 

The present form and size of Kentucky is the 
result partly of design and partly of accident. 
When separated from Fincastle County of 
Virginia, in 1776. the limits of Kentucky County 
were not very definitely fixed, the Eastern, or 
County line, extending from Cumberland Gap 
to the mouth of the Big Sandy, was established 
as the State line in 1779. The North and North- 
western boundary, from the mouth of the Big 
Sandy to the Mississippi, follows the low water 
on the right bank of the Ohio River, because in 
the act by which Virginia ceded the Northwest 
territory to the General Government, in 1784, 
she still retained possession of that portion of 
the Ohio. The West boundary, that from the 
mouth of the Ohio River to the Tennessee line, 
originally established in 1763, in accordance 
with a treaty between France, Spain and Eng- 
land, is the oldest boundary, legally, Kentucky 
has received. It follows the middle of the 
river. Islands number 1, 2, 3. 5 (Wolfe Island) 
and 8 were, by act of 1820, given to Kentucky. 
The South boundary, that from Cumberland 
Gap to the Mississippi River, does not follow 

creased, and in 1780 the legislature of Virginia 
ordered the county of Kentucky to be divided 
into three counties, Jefferson, Fayette and 
Lincoln. In February, 1791, the congress of 
the United States had agreed to admit Ken- 
tucky into the Union as an independent State on 
June 1, 1792. Accordingly the tenth and last 
convention assembled at Danville to form a 
constitution for the new Commonwealth. 


There are very few people that have not in 
some way heard about Kentucky. Everybody 
hears of Kentucky. The chief reason of all, 
perhaps is the fact that in the affairs of the 
nation its men have figured so brilliantly. 

The first Republican President of the United 
States, he who is coming more and more to be 
considered the greatest man of modern times, 
was born in Hardin County, Kentucky: Abra- 
ham Lincoln. 

A statesman, wise, just and brilliant, who said 
that he would rather Le right than President, 
lived all his life in Kentucky and represented her 
in the Congress of the United States: Henry 

Daniel Boone, the nation 's pathfinder, said 
with pride: "I am a Kentuckian." David 



Crockett, the hero of the Alamo, the man who . 
said. ,( He sure you're right, then go ahead," was 
a Kentuekian. Fitch, who invented the steam- 
boat, was born in Nelson County. Ephriam 
McDowell, one of the world's greatest surgeons, 
was a native of Danville, Kentucky, where he 
lived and died. 

No greater journalist ever lived than George 
Dennison Prentice, the Kentuckian; no greater 
preacher than Lard or Willets or Broaddus or 
Moses, all Kentuckians; no more profound 
Senator than James Beck. Associate Judge 
John Mason Harlon, of Kentucky, sits on the 
Supreme Bench of the United States. Lieuten- 
ant-General Simon Bolivar Buckner, former 
Governor of Kentucky, still lives at Glen Lily. 
Proctor Knott, retired and beloved, lives at 
Lebanon. Former Governor T. T. Crittenden 
is in Kansas City practicing law. Preston Les- 
lie, Governor of two States, but recently passed 

And the list is endless; through Zachary 
Taylor, whose grave is just a step outside of 
Louisville; John Morgan, the intrepid soldier 
of the South; General Joseph H. Lewis, of the Or- 
phans' Brigade, distinguished jurist and soldier; 
John C. Breckenridge, Judge Bruce, General 

citizenship are not dissimilar to the conditions 
among which they live. Perhaps at no place 
on the American Continent is there a purer strain 
of Anglo-Saxon blood than in Kentucky. 

The average Kentuckian of to-day is not dis- 
similar from his father who lived seventy-five or 
one hundred years ago and who, with strong 
heart and with confidence in his God, himself 
went out from his Eastern home and fought 
alone against tremendous odds, the battle for 
existence. Here it was that he erected his cabin 
in the wilderness, and his cabin was his castle; 
and here it was that he reared his family, and 
laid the foundation for this glorious Common- 
wealth. In manhood, in citizenship, in unde- 
veloped material and mineral resources Ken- 
tucky is as rich as any State in the Union.

Lyon and a host more, there walk the streets 
of the cities of Kentucky every day, men, whose 
names are of national prominence and whose 
figures are familiar to the nation's eye. 
Kentucky is the land of inspiredjnen and deeds. 


This State in which we live is an admirable 
place; we do not live in fear of any great force 
of nature which will destroy our crops, no 
desert winds sweep with hot blasts to burn up 
the products of our daily labor, but we have a 
mild, salubrious climate tempered by all God 
can give in the way of natural blessings. 

The spot which we call Kentucky, that place 
which God has made and in which we have set- 
tled is bountifully provided with "many re- 
sources. Over here in these dark mountains of 
the East, whose forbidding frowns have for 
many years expelled from their midst the 
mighty spirit of commerce, which would mine 
its coal and other natural products; upon these 
mountain tops grow giant trees. At other places 
we find vast quantities of valuable clay, which 
under the potter's hand is molded into articles of 
use and beauty Iron, too, is deep down in the 
bowels of the earth, and needs but the forge to 
bring into form and play. Everywhere about 
us nature has been most prodigal in gifts. We 
have a soil which is most productive and boun- 
teous rain and beautiful sunshine. So that this 
place that we call Kentucky is indeed an ad- 
mirable place and the people who constitute its
